Snapdragon 8 Gen 1: These smartphones get the new SoC first

Snapdragon 8 Gen 1

Qualcomm’s new SoC, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, was unveiled on Wednesday, December 1st, and Android manufacturers are already announcing the first smartphones that will feature the high-end chip in 2022.

It’s almost a tradition: every time Qualcomm launches a new mobile processor at its annual Tech Summit, some Android “partner” manufacturers fight over whose flagship will be the first with the SoC.

The OnePlus 10 Pro will establish itself as one of the most powerful smartphones in the world

Like last year, it is Xiaomi claiming that its Xiaomi 12 will be the first Android smartphone with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (although no date has yet been announced for the handset expected in December). Oppo followed Xiaomi’s announcement very closely and promised that its next flagship smartphone would also feature the latest Qualcomm SoC. Again, there is still no release date for the potential Oppo Find X4 Pro.

“We are committed to bringing high quality 5G smartphones to consumers, such as the Find X3 series, so we are very excited about the launch of the Snapdragon 8 platform,” said Scott Zhang, vice president of international sales for Oppo. We won’t find out more at first.

Honor, OnePlus, Realme and Co. will of course follow … and what about Samsung?

As you can imagine, you shouldn’t rely on these mere marketing announcements that call you “here” even though you don’t even have a planned release date for your smartphone. So be it: As every year in recent years, almost every Android smartphone in the upper class will be equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in 2022.

Qualcomm has published a list of brands that have committed to launch a device with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, including Black Shark, Honor, iQOO, Motorola, Nubia, OnePlus, OPPO, Realme, Redmi, SHARP, Sony Corporation, Vivo, Xiaomi and ZTE. Xiaomi seems to be the manufacturer where the integration of the Qualcomm chip seems to be the most advanced in terms of time. The Chinese have spoken out with a little video to show that mass production of the Xiaomi 12 with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 has already begun.

Interestingly, Samsung is not on Qualcomm’s list, although the South Korean giant’s upcoming Galaxy S22 is likely to feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor in some regions.
